The Audi Urban Concept electric vehicle is no longer in sketches and not in video teaser anymore. The German automaker has made the official presentation on the Audi Urban Concept electric vehicle at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. The idea behind the creation of the Audi Urban Concept as electric vehicle is an ultra-light car intended for congested urban spaces.
Inside, the cockpit of the Audi Urban Concept electric vehicle is made from carbon fiber-reinforced polymer which integrates the undercarriage of both seats. That is why the Audi Urban Concept refers to be “ultra-light” and we suspect, there is more use of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer on the many parts of this vehicle.
The Audi Urban Concept sits on the 21-inch wheels which are free standing and they have surrounding protective arches that features blinking strips of LED light. Back inside, the Audi Urban Concept electric vehicle is able to load two people where their position is slightly staggered and at a sporty, low level. All controls and materials on the Audi Urban Concept are intended to dictates of ultra-lightweight construction in order to assure they give a completely unique, sensory allure.
Here is what Audi thinks about their Audi Urban Concept, “The highly concentrated look of the technical study, with its forward-urging lines, is dynamic and emotional – it lends Audi’s design language a completely new impetus. The Audi urban concept is not based on any previous model – its development is solely oriented on the strict principles of lightweight construction, efficiency and reduction. The result is a concept car with no unnecessary weight, and one that concentrates on the pure essence of sporty motion.”
On the performance side, the Audi Urban Concept electric vehicle carries tow e-tron electric motors provided the propulsion which gives the vehicle the ability to accelerate its full power. A lithium-ion battery supplies the energy which makes the Audi Urban Concept electric vehicle ideal for city tours or commuting ride.
